For the Crust:

  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husk powder
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil cold, in small pieces
  • 6 tablespoons light coconut milk

For the Filling:

  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1 medium zucchini diced
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • cups reduced sodium chicken broth
  • ½ cup light coconut milk
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup raisins loosely packed
  • 2 cups mixed roasted winter squash and/or root vegetables such as butternut squash, rutabaga, carrots, or parsnips
  • cups chopped cooked chicken
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

For Finishing the Pastry:

  • 1-2 tablespoons light coconut milk for brushing the pastry


Prepare the crust:

  • Add the chickpea flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a food processor and blend to combine.
  • Sprinkle in the coconut oil pieces and pulse several times, until the mixture resembles crumbs the size of grated parmesan cheese.
  • Add the coconut milk and pulse until the mixture comes together in a rough ball.
  • Gather the dough and press into a disk.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate while preparing the filling.

Make the filling:

  • Preheat oven to 400ºF. (Note: If preparing to freeze, it isn’t necessary to preheat the oven now.)
  • In a large nonstick skillet, cook the onion and zucchini over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, until softened, stirring often.
  • Add garlic and cook 1 minute more.
  • Add curry powder and stir until vegetables are coated.
  • Measure the broth and coconut milk into a large glass measuring cup.
  • Whisk in coconut flour until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into the skillet.
  • Stir in raisins.
  • Increase heat to medium.
  • When mixture begins to bubble, let it simmer for 5 minutes, or until thickened.
  • Stir in cooked roasted vegetables, chicken, and cilantro.
  • Season to taste.
  • Turn off heat and transfer mixture to desired baking dish(es).

To assemble the casserole:

  • Remove crust from refrigerator and place on countertop between 2 pieces of plastic wrap.
  • Roll to ¼-inch thickness and cut to desired shape(s).
  • Place on top of chicken and vegetable mixture, either in 1 large piece or several smaller pieces.
  • Brush the top of the pastry with 1-2 tablespoons of coconut milk.
  • If baking immediately, place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until filling is bubbling and top is lightly browned.
  • To freeze for future baking, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 months.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350ºF and unwrap the pot pie.
  • Bake for 45-60 minutes, until filling is bubbly and the pastry is lightly browned.
